I am back in NY after a super fabulous trip out west. It was so great getting to spend such quality time with my parents, my brothers, and good friends. It is hard living so far away from all of them, especially now with Miss Sunshine in the picture — so it always means a lot when we can get together with the grandparents and aunts and uncles.
Now that I’m back it is time to share with you all another fantastic little find. This brooch over at Ulaa’s Bazaar encompasses everything that I love – felt in bright colors, sweet stitching, natural elements (a leaf!), and just an overall thoughtfulness that is so hard to pass up. Her shop is incredibly fun to browse around, so be sure to swing by.

I’ve posted about a wrist cuff before and today had to share with you another one. This triple-strand cuff from Amy over at Ponder and Stitch is so different in its design. She’s named it “Triple strand retro print fabric cuff bracelet in the best colors ever”, which is pretty much the coolest item name ever. And so true, at that! I am a big fan of reds and blues combined together (my wedding colors!). The button detail is so bright and fabulous, the triple stranded fabric bands so different and beautiful on the arm. Perfect for summer.
Sorry that I missed Friday’s Item! Bus-Stop Boy had been away all week fishing so I was on my own with Miss Sunshine — needless to say, by the time the end of the week rolled around I was feeling a bit stretched. That said, welcome to the second to last day of June.
As we move into July, all I can think about is wearing sweet skirts and dresses. The Tea Roses Jumper from Dep over at Depanneure Royale is light and summery and fun. She pulls her jumpers together from a variety of beautiful fabrics — I just happen to be particularly taken with this lovely rose cotton. I LOVE love love the button detail at the shoulders. I just want to slip this on and run through a field.
Today’s Awesome Item comes to you from California, where I have flown to visit my parents. Miss Sunshine and I took off on Saturday and will be headed back to NY tomorrow afternoon. I miss my Bus-Stop Boy and Jeff, but am grateful that my little one gets to spend some time with her Granny and Pops.
On to the goodness….
This. Stuff. Is. So. Awesome. Haley over at Bread of Many has some of the most unique and beautiful paper goods. As is oftentimes the case with these Awesome Items, I had a very hard time picking just one thing. These little invitations, though, caught my eye with their charm and for simply being so different and sweet. They make me want to have a party. Or just send some a couple out before the next play date. “Yes, I know we get together every week at the same time and the same place… but this week I just wanted to send you an official invitation.”
In line with my previously stated love of paper and little cards, here are some sweet hand-stitched envelopes from Miss Mayo. Made of old book pages, some tissue paper and thread, these are the kinds of things I’d just love to have in my purse for those random, “I wish I could give that person a special note” kind of moments.
My new shop is up and running. I only have one little item in there, but over the next few days I plan to stock more fun stuff. In the meantime, take a look at my first little pouch: Pink Pony
